Youth artists (ages 18 and younger) can sign up to sell their creations at the Young Artists’ Market, facilitated by the Bonifas Arts Center, at this summer’s Waterfront Art Festival.
The Young Artists’ Market tent will be open Aug. 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with table setup starting at 8 a.m., in Ludington Park.
Each artist will have four feet of table space and may sell any type of art or craft. In the past, young artists have sold creations such as pottery, wind chimes, ceramic ornaments, clay photo coasters, jewelry, and body products, said Carla Meyer, Bonifas special events coordinator.
The Bonifas aims to encourage youths to create and to help them acquire business skills, said Meyer.
All work must be created by youths, though a limited amount of adult assistance is acceptable. Youths must submit an application, artwork samples, and a $5 registration fee to the Bonifas by July 22 at 3 p.m.
